Here is the scene: U13-g, competitive state cup quarterfinal between two larger/well established club teams. Parents on one side of the field, teams and coaches on the opposite. First half hotly contested and ending in a tie. About 5 minutes into the second half opposing parental tensions rise. Verbal spewing back and forth between the parents elevates to a physical fight between two fathers. The girls that are actually playing the game stop and a whole bunch start to cry. Referee has to stop the game to get control of the fans. Here are the questions I have for the BigSoccer masses (approach them from the standpoint that you are a coach of one of the two squads): -When and in what manner do you address the players and parents about what went on? What do you tell both? -Do you ever allow the parent that was involved in the physical altercation to spectate at one of his daughter's games as long as they are involved with your team (and/or what type of penalization do you issue to the parent)? -Do you hold the bystander parents, the ones that didn't try to stop the verbal back and forth before it turned physical, accountable? If you do, what kind of punishment do you give to them?
